Flakey puff pastry encases a deep and rich oxtail and vegetable soup filling making this a hearty, satisfying meal.
Heat a heavy based pan and add the diced oxtail, browning the meat all over. Add the onions and leeks and cook together. Add the glass of port wine, then add the carrots, peas, sugar, oregano, parsley, tomatoes, tomato puree, celery and parsnip, covering with the beef stock. Stir well and bring to a simmer.
Turn down the heat and cook slowly for 1 ½ - 2 hours until soft and tender when ready. Ladle out a good mix of ingredients into an ovenproof soup bowl and leave to cool.
Meanwhile, roll out the pastry slightly larger than the soup bowls and brush with the egg wash. Sit the pastry over the soup bowls and place into a pre- heated oven at 180c for approx 12 mins. This will reheat the broth and produce a light crispy pastry lid.
